stage construction

For a current project I'm working around stage-design.

A sort of semi-permanent stage (for a few months) with a light roof.
Are there any special elements to think about?
What construction elements can be useful?
It's a small construction that will be about 12m - 20m (stage and platforms for the public included)

Here is a little image to give you an idea of the construction.


It will be a multi use performance stage... For music, shows, theatre.. so a basic light/sound equipment should be available.

Anyone any ideas of useful information? Things I need to think about...

Stadiums and sports arenas rarely have an impact on the population's health. They are places for entertainment, where the population can sit down on a seat and watch top athletes compete.

What does have an impact on the population's health:
- gyms
- places to run, with or without proper tracks
- swimming pools
- surfaces for team sports
etc.

but i think that if there is a good place to watch sport, people are going to go to watch sport. And if people are watching sport, that might inspire them to start playing too.

Sure, I've no problem with building fancy stadiums and arenas AFTER you've made actual sporting infrastructure available for the population.

Hi, It's impossible to find a basketball, tennis and volleyball picture at Gelredome stadium. Could you please help me ?

Maybe there were no indoor sports events at all ?

Is there anyone from Netherlands ?

^ Gelredome is not a multi purpose arena.

It's just a soccer stadium with a sliding pitch for the purpose of letting the grass grow outside in sunlight.

There no variable seating arrangement or variable pitch arrangement - just the usual letting extra people inside during concerts so that they occupy the flat pitch (something all stadiums do).

I've got a question about multi-purpose arenas... For example about basketball in stadiums.. like that:



This solution sux in my opinion. I mean.. visibility from first rows is not good. Stands, which are on the floor are nearly flat. Don't you think ?

My question is, what is the best way to make good arena for football/soccer and basketball? Is there that arena somewhere?

I don't think so... I think the best way will be stadium (let's say 25k) with rollout field and the bottom floor, that has ability to move down for about 4 or 5 meters. Do you thnik it is possible to make that kind of arena ? 25k on soccer, about 30k on basketball.. 30k on concerts..

Yes, that is better but.. I have a feeling, that this project is too much... I don't know.. complicated? And still this is not whole rollout field.

Would it be easier to make a hole under the whole field? And when field rollout, it would be place for normal stands?

France stadium is good, but still... you waste 1/2 stadium capacity on basketball game for example.

Here's a couple articles that might answer your questions about sightlines:
